About Topher Cushman

Both Deb and I grew up in Upstate New York and have lived in our neighborhood of Capitol Hill for over 10 years where we met and have started our family.

Topher Cushman purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Topher Cushman chose Eastern Market

In our opinion Capitol Hill is the best located neighborhood for taking in the City and its sights. It is also an amazing community with friendly neighbors. Its a small town village in the heart of one of the world's most powerful cities.

What makes this apartment unique

Stroll to the Market on the weekends, take a glass of wine over to the park in the evening or watch a storm come through from the front porch- you'll love where you are once you get here and look around.

My home away from home in DC!

  • 5 of 5

I love this flat and it's location. It is our favorite place to stay in DC. It is cozy, warm and you feel like a true local with all the activity in the park. We will continue to book this sweet flat every visit!

Good, Great and some okay.

  • 4 of 5

The Great: Overall the location of this rental cannot be beat, especially for the price. The park is across the street and we enjoyed it for many hours on the days with nice weather. Our girls played on the playground and we enjoyed the company of many leash free pups. We were close to the metro, Eastern market and could Uber to the National Mall for about $7.

The Good: the furnishing and accommodation of the space. There were enough necessities to get us started. We went shopping and cooked a majority of our meals in the very tiny kitchen space. The owners gives you a parking pass, which is awesome. Be sure to check the street signs for limitations. We didn't see the note about street sweeping on Wednesday morning and got a heafty $45 ticket.

The Okay: With kids, we put them in the living room on the pull out couch and air mattress. The air mattress is a twin size. The one bathroom is through the bedroom so this created multiple challenges. The kids had to come through our room each time they needed to use the bathroom, and we were confined to the bedroom in the morning until they awoke so we didn't disturb them. This meant no early morning run for me, and that didn't make me happy. The picture of the outside of the building is assuming. This is a basement rental and quite dark.

While this works okay for a small family, it is definitely a rental for a single person or couple.

First time visiting Washington, DC

  • 5 of 5

The Victorian Flat apartment was the perfect place to rent for a weeks stay. It was great coming back after a long day of sight seeing. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. We ate breakfast there every morning before walking to the National Mall or Union Station to get on the Big Bus. Some evenings we walked across the street to just sit in the park. We didn't need to call Topher but met him on our last day there. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Topher for helping make our Washington vacation a special one.

Perfect DC HomeBase

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean and well stocked. Quiet, safe neighborhood only a couple blocks from bus stops and a couple more to Metro. Topher was friendly, helpful and easygoing. It’s a small, basement apartment but we’re a family of four (two teens) and we cooked every breakfast and dinner here and slept like babies after long DC tours. Plenty of room for comfort and rest. We were thrilled with our stay.
